They may be valid but does not represent where most Americans live. Most Americans have long ago moved past keeping racism in the forefront.
It's Obama and the liberals who keep bringing it up and, in the process, have done more to make it worse than to heal any residual racial divide.
So why do they do that? For what purpose other than to create more derisiveness on the issue and for no other reason than personal and political gain?
I'd really like to know.
How do you know what 'most Americans' believe??
You're a shut-in with no social life but Topix!!
As for who's promoting racism, read it and weep, nitwit;
Racial Comment by Republican Official in Ohio Rekindles Battle Over Early Voting"
"Doug Preisse, the influential Republican Party chairman of Franklin County, which includes the state capital, Columbus, was quoted in The Columbus Dispatch newspaper as saying,“I guess I really actually feel we shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban — read African-American — voter turnout machine.”
Another Stupid, Racist Comment by the Republicans? Say It Aint So
"A supporter named Ed Koziol wrote to the representative first saying that he was glad of the voter suppression laws that Clemmons had drafted. He then commented that the government shouldn't offer a reward for people to obtain voter ID cards because, in his words, "It would be like a swarm of bees going after a watermelon."
How's about your hero, Newt??
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), claims that poor children have “no habits of working.” While he does not explicitly say “black children,” his related comments about “black people deserving better than food stamps” as well as his tinged epitaph for Obama, the “food stamp president,” allow us to draw a dotted line. Again, not the end of a campaign."
"Yes, "Mittens" finally made the list. At a campaign stop in Michigan, former Governor Romney (R-Mass.), quipped,“No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate; they know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”(‘Because I’m white”). In an obvious allusion to the birther movement, Romney single-handedly validated the belief that Obama is a foreign-born socialist muslim terrorist. Bravo governor, bravo."
" Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., has again inserted foot into mouth by making some ignorant comments in regard to Hispanics, blacks and welfare. Last week at a Town Hall meeting, Walsh told constituents the Democratic Party wants Hispanics and blacks to be dependent on government and also said civil rights leader Jesse Jackson wants the same thing.
"Jesse Jackson would be out of work if (blacks) weren't dependent on government," Walsh said.
On Friday, Walsh had the opportunity to apologize on the "Big John & Amy" radio show but instead, as reported by the Chicagoist, he stepped in even deeper saying, "All Jesse Jackson is trying to do is to keep African-Americans down on some plantation."
The problem with you racists is that you're too obtuse to recognize racism from your own, because it is part of your core value system.
